Fyrzout...sorry to hear of your problem.
To me the technicians have not gone far enuff yet to find the source and cause of your problem. I heartily recommend do not spend money on a PCV or any other tuning device as they will not fix the problem.
We have to remember you have a stock bike that has had a heat related problem since it had 400 miles on it. When we buy our toasters, TV's, vehicles, etc, they are supposed to work as they are designed to. Put some bread into a toaster and have to push the button down 20 times to toast the bread? Have to push the TV on button 30 times to turn the TV on?
NO! Many possible scenarios here. Are any of the sensors failing to send the appropriate signal to the ECU? I have had sensors fail that DO NOT have the ECU sense the failure thus NOT illuminating the FI light. Is the ECU at fault here?
It is time for the tech to have at hand a multimeter to check resistances and voltage outputs of the sensors, have a spare ECU to pop in and try. At times we have to be parts replacers until we find the source of the problem.
I also suspect that maybe a more thorough inspection of the California emmissions which is a evaporative emmisions control system rather than "messing" with that system may help.
You scenario is not the norm and is not how that skoot should operate. We should NOT have anomollies that prevent us from the normal and expected operation of our toasters, TV's and vehicles.
GOOD LUCK but keep on Kawi to get your skoot fixed, they will be able to with the correct diagnosis.
